Myanmar update

YANGON (AFP) — Myanmar's opposition party led by Aung San Suu Kyi on Sunday labeled a recent visit by a UN envoy "a waste of time" as the ruling junta continued to trumpet its own vision of democracy.

Ibrahim Gambari, the United Nations' most senior negotiator with Myanmar, left the country Saturday after failing to secure a meeting with Aung San Suu Kyi, who is kept under house arrest by the ruling generals.

The junta said that the Nobel peace prize winner had refused to see Gambari, and on Sunday printed pictures in its New Light of Myanmar newspaper of his entourage waiting in vain outside her lakeside home in Yangon.

What's wrong with a little visit?


I apologize for the last few posts. They were created out of necessity for É2.0.
